instead of having elevators bound by pistons which requires more space to be cleared and alot more stacking of pistons ontop of another depending on how far you dig down or build up. you could simply make a rail system that when connected to more of the same grids for rails it will increase its height in which it will go up or down. however they would need to be connected to a 1x1 large block and cannot be cascaded ontop of one another without support from a 1x1 block behind it.
you could have a 1x1 elevator block that will attach to the rails akin to rotor or piston heads able to house 1-3 people and you could have a 1x3 which could hold about 5-10 people. and the rails could be singular like | or double rails like ||
settings could be somewhat like rotors in which you can adjust its speed and how fast it would slow down when nearing / reaching the top rail to simulate more akin to an elevator. expansion upon the rail idea could also be used for trams and carriages etc. to streamline and to put less strain on the server for those wanting to build trains / tram like transports to connect bases.
